Hideo Kojima suggests that Death Stranding will take some time to release, but has not disclosed properly whether the game will release in 2019 or not.
This game is new and should not be rushed. Take ya time
Definitely agree. We have more than enough games to play until then.
At least this somewhat puts to rest the speculation that it’s coming out this year. I was hoping with all the talk about it recently that it would be possible, But hey at least as long as he’s talking about the development it won’t be too bad of a wait
Nitro, Bare in mind that Kojima is major troll when it comes to info on his games so I wouldn't be surprised if DeathS is released this year.
He is a troll, but he's also well known for taking forever to release a game.
Yeah as usual we PS gamers have too many games to play
Definitely a PS5 launch title
PS5 launch game confirmed!
From the guy who was claiming just a few weeks ago that PS5 would launch in 2019?
gutted , seriously looking forward too it , but tbh , if it comes to being on p4/pro or , looking like a full on cgi movie on p5 release title... , p5 deal for me. cannot wait.
it's a ps4 game. it will be on the ps5 when it releases in fall 2020 - 2021.
Sources? ... yeah, you don't have any.
@demonicale: deductive logic. I could explain it and give you all the sources, but what fun would that be? 2016 2020 =4 2021 = 5 - time wasted on creating a new engine + sony's devs pitching in means awhile which most likely means 1 to 2 years out. oops! i explained it
LMAO! .... "Full on CGI movie on Ps5" ...
it's smart to say it will take a while. this way people don't get their hopes up for 2019, but it doesn't mean it won't come out this year. most likely early 2020.
lol, you kinda contradicted yourself.
To be honest after this comment I agree. With all the showings to devs of the game lately I did think it would be this year. Unfortunately it looks like it will be 2020, maybe even late 2020. You don’t say a games release will take a while if it’s coming out this year.
Didn't he pretend to be a fake studio and dress up covered in bandages just to troll people over metal gear ? The guy loves to tease and play games while creating games. I wouldn't rule anything out
It's Jan right now. Takes a while could mean any number of things. A while could be another 6-8 months, 3-6 months, 9+ months. Or "I'll be there in a while" meaning w/in the hour, a couple hours... A while isn't a good indication of how much more time is required. Now Kojima is a perfectionist so yeah, I could see this sliding into 2020 depending on where they're at, how he feels about it, etc. But I certainly wouldn't jump on "a while" meaning that it's definitely not releasing this year... Summer would now be a leap possibly but Fall-Winter could easily be on the boards.
PS3 went out with a bang, so not surprised that the PS4 will as well. Last of Us 2, Death Stranding, too good.
Yep, and can’t forget Days Gone, Ghost of Tsushima and Dreams. What a way to end this absolutely incredible console generation for PS4.
Ghost of tsushima and dreams are my most anticipated.
Depends how we interpret "a while" the word "soon" for me would suggest within 6mths or this year, while, pun intended "a while" suggest nxt year for me at least. Plus different countries may have different ways of the word, Japanese people might use the word a while meaning soon? One thing we do know is that we'll be playing it within the nxt 18mths.
Save it for PS5 launch along with last of us 2. The amount of games coming this year is more than enough to make the wait easier
Give it to us as a PS5 launch title! What a killer move that would be.
I knew it, there's no way this game was coming out this year. You dont rush Kojima, it'll come when it comes
The game is already in the localization phase. It could still get released this year
Kojima really needs some marketing people to handle this stuff for him.
Kojima personal twitter account is more effective for advertising than the entire marketing team at devs like ea or Activision, they are a bunch of clueless dudebros without an ounce of ingenuity between the lot of them.
OK, but did I say he needs EA or Activision to market this for him or just a team he puts together to help manage consumer and media expectations and communicate more than he currently can? I mean frankly right now he seems to be showing the game to everyone but the people he expects to buy it, folks are getting frustrated. I got a bud who's a lifelong Kojima fan and even HE'S getting annoyed by it.
One line about Kojima, 5 about EA and Activision. Makes you think.
I think after his visit to Guerrilla, new ideas came to mind so looks like he needs more time to add new game features or change in the story?
Well, looks like Kojima will take forever on this then. It sucks but what he ends up releasing is usually excellent unless it's rushed *cough* MGS V *cough*.
80 million was spent on the development of the game...Konami needed to get a return and couldn't wait forever
Maybe Konami shouldn't have assigned him, or allowed him to help or take over other projects during the development of MGSV then.
No, I understand completely. I'm actually one of those rare people that understood why Konami fired Kojima and don't hate them because of a business decision.
People don't get that game development isn't a charity, eventually the people who paid for development are allowed to ask "What are you doing!?".
I don't think it'll take forever.
Haha and when it drops it's gonna flop hard.
Haha 😂 you’re right my Xbot brotha he should had gone with milkysoft our glorious god Phil would let him take forever
Its hideo kojima. People will buy it based on name alone.
It's who? Is that a Fortnite skin? His name aint selling jack but to geeks in the weeds.
Whatever helps you sleep at night.
Probably. The guy is a notorious perfectionist which in any industry can make or break you professionally, as you need to make deadlines which perfectionists often neglect to take into account. The worst kind are the ones with no one above them to steer them toward an actual finished product. It usually ends in drained funding, people leaving, or the investors replacing the perfectionist with someone else. Some creative minds need strict direction in order to create.
Some kids are so bitter they don't have a PS4. Take your salty trolling elsewhere.
Any game not coming out in 2019 is next gen confirmed
So what will be released in the last two years of this gen?
So much for the bullshit rumors of it dropping in a few months.
He said awhile. That is not a predertermined amount of time
Ps5 it is then. Hint hint
There is no rush. It seems to be progressing smoothly and there is plenty of time to release in it within a normal timeframe of production
So cross release on PS4 and PS5?
Making my lunch today will take "some time."
So... what kind of game is this again?
I managed to wait nearly four years for Ace Combat 7 so for a Kojima game I’ll wait just as long and it’s hasn’t been 3 yrs since it was announce back in 2016
A playful Twitter response turns into “this not releasing in years” comments lol
This game was never a 2019 release! Have you guys learned nothing from his development style with Konami? Promise the 1st year it's coming, Next E3 it's coming guys. A year after that we have a new trailer to show but, it's coming. The year after that sorry we've hit a delay but, it's coming at the end of the year. Five years after the first promise the game releases. Wash and rinse again.
Him being the master of fakeouts....I expect this to drop by March or April...
March or April 2021
Sounds like a PS5 launch title/cross-generation. I seriously think Sony is going to make the big 3 (Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us Part II) cross-generation. It just makes a ton of sense. It'll give people incentive to adopt PS5 at launch. But if that's the case, I worry that this thing is going to be expensive--to the point that Sony really wants to give you a reason to get one as soon as possible. Sure, you can get it on PS4, but I guess it depends on priorities. I'm rather curious to see where they go with this. I'm open to being wrong, but I strongly believe these games are cross-generation.
If Kojima says “it will take some time”, don’t even dream about a 2019 release.
He could be telling the truth and it might actually take awhile, which is fine. But Kojima is good at playing tricks on fans. Remember how he revealed MGS V?
Yeah if it comes out when it comes out, but i'm out when it comes out and don't know it's out. Will i have to buy it when I'm back in or have to go back out. Right what was I saying.
I don't know how I respond to this type of crick bait and dumb responses. This twitter exchange was on the his picture with Japanese voice actors during recording of Death Stranding. He is recording Japanese voice track for the game now. As you know, localization starts only after completion of original version which is in English. I'd bet for release of Death Stranding in 2018.
